You know KIRC is Kaho’olawe Island Reserve Commission, right?
To start, if you are not familiar with this State government commission, see http://kahoolawe.hawaii.gov/history.shtml.
You probably noticed their location and have seen their boat there, but they have plans for that land over the next several years. Their astute executive director Mike Naho’opi’i contacted us to set up a meeting to inform us of their draft plans for an education and operations center. So our Design Review Committee (DRC) chair Randy Wagner set up a meeting with Mike this morning at our office.
In general the committee was very pleased with the outreach and their preliminary plan for the two story structure, as well as the overall improvements to the surrounding land. Mike explained they did secure some design funding from the legislature, but construction is likely several years away.
